I’m using Python to grab chat messages. Eventually, after some time, the IRC seems to start returning empty strings and doesn’t revert to sending actual messages. When I restart my program, it’ll go back to working without issue for some time, until it inevitable happens again.
Is this what happens when a program sends too many requests to the IRC server? I’m thinking no, since it starts working again as soon as I restart the program, but I can’t think of what else it could be, due to it working initially, but then inevitably breaking.
